Lion Brand on the Road: Upcoming Events

June 20th, 2013

One of the best parts about working at Lion Brand is meeting our amazing customers and hearing what you have to say about our products, patterns, and community. Working in the yarn industry, many of us travel and meet knitters and crocheters across the country, and I often get asked, “Will Lion Brand be at an event near me? I’d love to check out your new yarns in person!”

Earlier this year, we had a ton of fun at Stitches West in Santa Clara, CA and Vogue Knitting Live in New York, NY!

In the second half of 2013, we’re proud to sponsor and have booths at these upcoming shows and events:
